84 Million Super Bowl Fans Flee Glee

Two interesting statistics from Super Bowl Sunday:

111 million viewers watched the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl LXV, a new record total number of U.S. viewers for any television show, ever.

26.8 million viewers kept their televisions on for a special episode of Glee, which immediately followed the Super Bowl.

The Glee episode was the most watched scripted television show (excluding sports, reality shows, and news) in the last three years. But these statistics also mean that 75% of the Super Bowl audience or 84 million viewers changed the channel or turned their TVs off instead of watching Glee.
